  • Posted on May 12, 2019 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday and happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms in the USA!  Today’s energies are under the influence of a Leo Moon, which is happy and open-hearted. We have some pleasant lunar activity that supports happy emotions. As we move into the early evening the tone goes a bit quieter as the Moon goes Void of Course. Hope you all enjoy the day! Let’s see what this week has in store for us.


Monday begins with the Moon still in its Void of Course lunation. This changes in the late afternoon as it moves into practical Virgo. A great time for spring cleaning and tackling those chores where the little details are important. We have a trine between the Sun and Pluto as well today. Whether you’re clearing out your closet or flushing out your brain, this transit is the time for getting rid of whatever has become unnecessary or outworn in our lives. And this can be anything from an unhealthy relationship to old and outworn beliefs that are holding you back. Or you just may need to chuck the rubbish out of your workspace. Basically, we are being stimulated to make some needed changes.


Our day starts with a sextile between Venus and Mars, which supports relationship conversations and activities. The Moon will go Void of Course briefly in the early evening and then shift into balancing Libra soon after. This adds more support to the area of relationships and bringing things into balance. It’s easier to find compromises for challenging situations under a Libra Moon.


Today brings us the biggest shift of the week. Venus moves into Taurus today, and Mars moves into Cancer. Venus is comfy in Taurus and can help us to manifest our desires and needs. Just be careful not to overindulge! Mars’ move into Cancer, on the other hand, is not as comfortable. The focus is on working through home and family issues now, but warrior Mars wants things done quickly and decisively. The problem here is that emotions take time to process, so we need to find that balance between our emotional needs and ambitious needs. We also have a sextile between Mercury and Neptune today, where our intuition runs high. Mainly, this is a good time for creativity, optimism, intuition and hope. We just need to make sure that we stay grounded.


The Moon goes Void of Course mid-morning on Thursday, and soon after moves into brooding Scorpio. While this can make the next couple of days feel emotionally difficult, it is a good time for getting below the surface of some issues that need our attention. The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power, and it’s an excellent time to rid ourselves of old fears and limiting habits. It can be an intimate and passionate time. Mercury is busy for the next 2 days as well, making communications important at this time. We have a Mercury/North Node sextile, which focuses on movement and how we communicate and plan our destiny. It’s a good energy for conversations around serious, long-term planning. If you have something you need to tell the world, now is the time to do it! There is also a trine between Mercury and Saturn in play. This extends into Friday and makes it a supportive energy for conversations or research on deeper topics, which make you feel emotionally vulnerable.



Today we have a seasonal Blue Moon in Scorpio. Right now, the water and earth elements are quite strong. This provides us with some great emotional and pragmatic support. We are, however, missing the element of air, which can lead us to feel stuck in a comfortable rut right now. We need to be conscious and open to new ideas and new perspectives on life now. We have Mercury in a trine with Pluto during the day, which can help us get to the heart of things. This is also a good time for mental activities that require research, concentration and investigation. We also have a conjunction between Venus and Uranus, which can have us itching for a change at this time in the areas of romance and our social lives. This Taurus/Scorpio energy means that Taurus can help us understand what we value and desire, and Scorpio helps us to go down to our emotional depths to release any behaviours or beliefs that are self-defeating. The Moon goes Void of Cours in the late evening.


As we begin our Sunday morning, the Moon will have slipped into optimistic Sagittarius, bringing us some stability and peace. It is a suitable time for large-scale plans but not for any occupations which require attention to detail. This lunar mood is very adventurous, active and restless for exploration. We want to experience life first hand. we want to get outdoors, see the sights, connect with nature, go places we haven’t been before. Use the day to get out and socialize, try something new, or philosophize with friends.
